Homemade, soaked and fermented sourdough bread can be a nutritious addition to some people’s diets, and the same goes with tortillas made with the long traditional method. But let’s face it: most bread, tortillas and wraps we buy today are nutrition-less, over-processed grain and gluten products that cause many of us digestive distress, slowly leading to disease.
Sydney butcher Andrew helps us distinguish between the common meat industry terms: free range, free roaming, grass fed, pasture fed and organic. So we know what to look for!
All you need for this recipe is your leftover dinner and a few eggs. That’s it! Once you’ve made your first leftovers omelette, you will be addicted to the simplicity and deliciousness of this meal.
A modern-day order of fish and chips is usually a killer meal containing processed flours and harmful vegetable oils. You can always order grilled fish, but the chips or fries will still be fried in over-processed, rancid oils, which is enough reason to steer clear. This version, however, gives you all the nutrition and tastiness of fish and chips, with none of the nasties. You get a nice piece of fish with a light healthy crust, and homemade chips baked in the oven. Make this meal for your kids – they will love it!
Bex talks with butcher Andrew about the importance of knowing where your meat comes from, what it’s fed, and how it’s raised.
Forget expensive energy bars, sports bars and meal replacement bars that are full of manufactured powders and other non-foods. Here you have a bar that is full of nutrients and it’s made from real food in your kitchen for a fraction of the cost. We all know how nutritious spinach is, then you’ve got protein and nutrient-rich eggs, garlic which boosts immunity in so many ways, and the healthy fats of nuts or seeds. This is a true health bar.
Bex talks with butcher Andrew Lupton of Brookvale Meats in Sydney Australia, about why people think grass-fed meat is expensive and how to always get it cheap!
I used to think that the term healthy party food was an oxymoron.
How can you use healthy and party in the same breath?
Haven’t we all had a party throw us off our healthy eating goals?
Or felt like a party-pooper for not partaking in all the rich, sugary, processed party food?
Well it doesn’t have to be like that anymore.
When you think of sushi, fish comes to mind. Salmon and tuna are the most popular; even teriyaki chicken. However, just like the wonderfully versatile egg muffins, homemade sushi can be made with almost any meat and veg, so the combinations are endless. You can use almost ANY leftover foods in them. Just think of the nori sheet (seaweed) like a tortilla or pita – something to wrap your delicious food in!
gg muffins never get boring. Since the ingredients are determined by what leftovers you have in your fridge, they can be different every time you make them. It is fun discovering new combinations of ingredients that taste amazing in your egg muffins, and you can use almost ANY leftover foods in them.
